III AHR Report
Regarding APDF, Elyne mentioned there is a slight increase in the number of applicants and there is plenty of money left. UA APs don’t qualify for APDF. Alumni Association APs may not qualify either, but it hasn’t been explored.
Exemption authority is being pursued through JCAR by Tom Morelock. Merit Board has authority to reject a rule approved through JCAR. There will be a 30 day public comment period during the rule making period. Offering comments is very important because otherwise there is assumed no opposition.
Pilot program expired August last year. Tom Morelock said he would incorporate that into the rules as a custom classification. There is a credential assessment instead of test. Another important point is the clearing of the register. Schools are asking for another pilot program regarding the rule-of-3 for presentation to merit board in May.
Not much new on budget. UI has reserves and departments have been saving money, and could absorb some of the changes being proposed by the legislature.
The Draft Civil Service audit report is in. It includes suggestions/mandates that we can respond to. An April meeting has been scheduled to discuss the suggestions with auditors and administrators. The report expressed concerns with classification, academic hourly use, and extra help use. Extra restraints include 900 hours of work with a 30 day break, but rule also says not to work more than 6 months in 1 year period.
AHR will review with department the job descriptions to defend the positions recommended for conversion. UI will meet in April to discuss these. If UI agrees to the conversion at the very latest it will happen when the position is vacated. Elyne expressed concern for minutes including number of positions being recommended for change because we still have a chance to dispute them.
